Investigative Immunotoxicology provides a critical evaluation of proposed experimental animal models and approaches, and discusses the contribution that immunotoxicity can make to the overall assessment of chemical-induced adverse health effects on humans and the ecosystem. Following a review of general concepts in immunotoxicology, the book discus
The Immune System. Approaches and Models Relevant to the Assessment of Chemical-Induced Immunotoxic Effects in the Ecosystem. Approaches and Models Relevant to the Assessment of the Impact of Chemical-Induced Immunotoxicity on Human Health. Models and Approaches to Chemical-Induced Allergenicity. Autoimmunity. Emerging Issues in Immunotoxicology. The Role of Immunotoxicology in Risk Assessment and the Regulatory Process.
